This fun and educational program includes training in leadership skills in group and independent settings, interacting with different ages of kids, safe animal handling, and learning to lead many fun games, crafts, and activities. There will be a blend of training, shadowing, and leading camp activities with feedback from teachers. The program will also include a First Aid/CPR certification component.
